CCP I love your game. I love the promise that it would one day be the ultimate science fiction simulator. I have always defended the game and have tried my best to get others involved in it.

This broke my heart a little.

This is fake, CCP knows as well as we do money for non vanity items has killed every game that has ever tried it. No amount of creeping it in has worked either.


The spelling was so bad - surely it has to be fake.

I guess we should wait a couple of days until things calm down and then see what CCP have to say officially.

CCP are going to TRY and be greedy, we see that now, in the AUR prices for vanity items.

They WILL SUCCEED, if you let them, and you let them by buying the items.

There is only one way to prevent it succeeding, don't buy them.

Or would you prefer to play Entropia?

Load it up into Notepad and browse / search there.

You could also grep out PDF markup keywords to make it easier. (search online for a markup keyword spec and dangly bits so you can use that as a removal list).



too lazy to remove encryption...

Now we know why the viewing standings got removed. So you don't feel guilty when buying faction!

Attach WinHex to the memory or VS debugger to the adobe process and search / browse the memory. It has already been decrypted. ALternatively save the memory out and grep that.


It's not hard, I would but I am unable to dl the pdf.

Hey Miilla quit all ready. Your incessant whining is like the droning of a katydid.

Anyone with even a 1/4 of a brain can see this is fake and not real. Look at all the grammatical and spelling errors.

OP retyped it, if you had actually read the PDF you'd realise that it has no spelling errors like the OP.

Spelling errors in an internal magazige written by non-native english speakers (you've heard them on the vids right?). Shocker.

This document looks legit to me, I am sad to say.

Look, there is a class of customers that WILL BUY this, its naturall and many businesses try to cater to them. Thats not the problem i have with CCP, if they want to build WoD for this class of customers, feel free.

What buggers me is that they build a game called EVE for a DIFFERENT class of customers, and now after 8 years they think it a good idea to CHANGE the game to cater to another class of customers. Thats disrespectful, greedy, and outright impudent BECAUSE they count on the fact that ppl who invested alot in the game already (few years or alot of time) will keep subbing for a period of time (notice they mention a slow change over a long period of time to ease customers into it).

This are customer-unfriendly practices, yes, sanctioned and often used int he industry (not just IT, everywhere), and still SO WRONG if you have any kind of morale.

Yup. This. I like the idea of WIS, I looked forward to the possibility of it actually being completed.
However, doing it this way doesn't work, or at least doesn't build someplace worth visiting at the end.

The PDF has copy disabled. You have to manually type the text if you want to quote it.

I wonder if you can OCR a PDF document...

Tell me this... Are they using Scandinavian grammer in an English language? That is the telltale sign that their first language is Scandinavian.

I see these errors daily at work, I can even tell when somebodies 1st language is Russian; Ukranian, Romanin etc by the grammer they ues.

Everybody uses their native grammer but only translate the words, but apply the wrong grammer, or fall back to their grammer when in doubt.

Having been surrounded and had to learn a few languages myself :P


Paste a snippet here maybe I can tell you.

This! Look at the pdf and judge for yourself. Then show it to all your eve friends so they can do the same.

If this is real, i SINCERELY HOPE that Lulzsec or Anon DDoS the hell out of CCP and destroy them like they did with sony, except CCP won't be able to recover from two months without services.

It takes all of 5 minutes to unlock a PDF, alter it and re-lock. Just FYI

That was a whole lot less scandalous than the hype made it out to be. If it's fake, then I have to wonder who would bother to fake something so banal. CCP is interested in expanding microtransactions? What a scoop!

In the nine and a half years I've been following/testing/playing EVE I've never read something so depressing from CCP. You really were different but it's plainly obvious the designers in charge have lost the vision and drive the company first had.

I guess all's left is to assume CCP has started 'growing slower', soon they'll reach their peak and only downhill wll follow. I guess it's commendable that's taken you so long to become so focused on money instead of quality products and customer satisfaction.

LOL Instead of locking threads for trolls or other reasons, ccp is locking threads for "Multiple posts" and pointing them here. They aren't even denying it!

Because the mods just got around to it.

I'm having this strange feeling that this is real since this hasn't been locked for "lulz rumorz hahah"...

...well then...I have to make up my mind about some things it seems...

The day you can buy ANY sort of "performance enhancers" with RL money in EVE will be the day I quit my accounts. If the 3000+ USD I've spent on this game in the past 6 years have not been enough then you can go **** yourselves.

I really hope this is a fake... but somehow it would fit really well with the picture I've got of CCP in the last while. ugh

The article may be full of them but the pdf itself isn't. In fact the way the document is worded, especially the first section, is very similar to how the devs talked about Incarna during the AT.

So it's either a very clever fake or legit. Either way, it's an entertaining read Wink

It was the first totally honest thing that came from CCP since a long time, that alone makes it news-worthy.
